His 48-square-foot Micro Cabin on Wheels and Workshop

Keith built his micro cabin on a trailer so that he can make himself at home almost anywhere. The interior of the camper is very rustic and cabin-like. It also includes lots of clever features like a spice rack, a pull-out desk, and multi-functional living space.

Today Keith still has his 48-square-foot cabin on a trailer, but he also has this 20′ by 20′ workshop that he is getting to live and work out of in Bend, Oregon. Currently, it’s the perfect setup for him and he is renovating the micro cabin. What are your thoughts on his micro cabin and lifestyle? Pretty interesting right? Be sure to watch the video tour below with Tiny House Giant Journey to learn more.
